Morning All,

My baby daughter recently dropped my wife's Samsung S3 Mini and the rear camera lens popped out.  Obviously, it's out of warrantly, and probably not covered anyway, and so I want to find out about having it repaired, or doing it myself.

I've searched for replacement parts, and while I can find plenty of Chinese sites which will sell me the replacement camera, I'm yet to find anyone who can provide the actual glass lens covering it.

I've found a vid on YouTube which shows me how to replace the unit, but as yet I can't find the thing to actually swap out.

Does anyone have any recommendations on either a shop/technician who could fix this, or is anyone able to point me in the right direction to source a replacement part? Cheers
Craig

ebay is where I'd get this sort of thing. There are shops around the country that could probably do it, if you posted your location.
